*Barclays Bank plc v Svizera Holdings BV and another company

Bank – Banker/client relationship. The Commercial Court held that Barclay's bank was entitled to recover, in full, sums it claimed against the first defendant, as borrower, and against the second defendant, as guarantor. The court dismissed the defendants' defences to the claim and held that there had been no advisory relationship between the bank and the defendants, as alleged and, accordingly, no duty of care in respect of which the bank could be held to be in breach.
